    Hello Team,

    I seek your help and suggestions on "RadHtmlChart" control. We have to use RadHtmlChart to show the drilling down functionality with "Pie" and "bar" charts. I have started using this control but its better to have some suggestions from you guys before finishing it up.

    1) I am creating a page where i need to show drilling down of data with pie chart and bar charts. I want to focus on look and feel of the charts. We want the pie charts and bar charts to be good in look and feel, must be flashy and interactive etc. Can you suggest the proper links from where we can refer this kind of charts(for drilling down data).

    2) with a good look and feel we want to show some information when user will hover on information , we want the pie's and bars to move and dance. Please help us to find such a good links and demos from where we can refer such type of functionality for RadHtmlChart.

    Looking forward for your response.

    Thanks and have a great day.!!!

    Hello Aakansha,

    I have just answered your support ticket on the matter and for your convenience and also for others that may have similar questions I am pasting my reply below:

    Straight to your questions:

    1) The following resources will be useful for you to see how to implement drill-down charts, how to respond to cilent-side events and how to configure PieCharts and BarCharts:

    2) Charts are generally static content, which is usually implemented with rendering images from the server. The RadHtmlChart renders on the client and thus allows you to have client-side events (see the above link) which is about as much interaction as can be achieved with a chart. Another benefit we added is the highlighting of the items when you hover them with the mouse and the animation when tooltips transition from one item to another. I am afraid, however, that "dancing" bars or sectors are not available in the control. On showing additional data - the cilent-side events expose a lot of data that you can show in a div next to the chart with JavaScript. We are also working on adding templates for the built-in tooltips so you can show data from additional columns in  your datasource. This feature is planned for the Q3 2012 release. You can monitor its progress in this PITS item.

    Kind regards,
